Thought you’d get a lot of responses.

I did a forum post and A Huxly was very informative. I’m using bimetal blades by Lennox after a review of my forum topic and a conversation with a sales rep for the place where I purchase my blades now..I have a Timberwolf but I’ve not used it yet. Doing outside projects while weather allows.

Here is my forum post

Carbide is best but very expensive. I’m planning to use the timberwolf blade on dried seasoned hardwood that I’ve milled.

Good Hunting!

I use Highland's Woodturners blade and I think it’s suited to cutting bowl blanks. You don’t want a timberwolf resawing blade for this application as the resawing blade is designed to cut a minimal kerf. For cutting green wood bowl blanks you really want a wide kerf that you will get from a blade with a significant set.

I’m a fan of Timberwolf blades and their website offers various blades for green wood, resawing, and nearly all types of cuts. Contact them directly and they have always been quite helpful.

Have your say...
